rd. there's a new debt ceiling plan from speaker john boehner and the house republicans that could force senate democrats to finally show their hand and pass a budget. plus it's only day four of president obama's second term, but joe biden is already commenting on possibly running for the top job himself in 2016. we'll show you what he said in a minute. first the new developments in the debate over guns in america. the national rifle association last night delivered a sharp response to president obama's inaugural address. speaking in reno, nevada, way waywayn wayne lapierre lashed out at one word from president obama. >> we cannot mistake absolutism, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it's a way of redefining words so that commonsense is turned upside down and that nobody knows the difference. >> lapierre vowed not to give ground on gun control including effor
of saying hey, we're not going to lift the debt ceiling, you say, yeah, we will for three months and then go ahead and pass a budget in that time period. is that possible? >> i sure hope so. obviously that's the goal. that's been my goal for the last 18 months since i've been in the senate. obviously to push the senate to do something. as you mentioned, we haven't had a budget for almost four years. washington, d.c i think we can agree on one thing, that the worst run institution in america right now is the united states congress. we need to do something different. >> brian: so to do that, you got to get to some control over your own colleagues and to do that, hold on to their paycheck. republicans like darrell issa say i think that's unconstitutional. >> there is a lot of people in washington, d.c. that obviously don't want to cut their pay. the purpose of that constitutional amendment was to make sure that members of congress didn't enrich themselves during the legislative session. i'll tell this to darrell issa and nails wants to make this argument. cut your pay and go back to your distri
the cliff on the debt ceiling. >> if you do talk to republicans, they'll tell you this is a president, very confident from his re-election. some might use the word cocky, and that he has become more partisan and more hard nosed. would you agree with that sae assessment? >> and is it by necessity or choice? >> no, i think he's become -- he's practical. and if the other side is going to take a position that they're going to oppose you on every initiative, you have to seek national support. in a democracy, people push policy forward not the politicians and so that's a lesson that he has drawn from the first term. that said, as far as i can -- as i know, and as i know him, his door is always open to people who are willing to work together to solve problems and one hopes in the next four years there will be a spirit of cooperation. understand we're never going to agree on anything. that's why we have two parties. in order to move the country forward we have to move together. >> david axelrod, always good to see you. >> good to see you, savannah. >> i know you'll be watching. we will have more on
, today republicans in the house are expected to vote on a plan that's going to defuse the debt ceiling crisis at least temporarily. republicans are planning to offer legislation that will suspend the enforcement of the federal debt limit for at least three months, allowing the government to keep borrowing money to pay for all of its current obligations. in exchange, the house gop'ers want the democratic-controlled senate to do something they haven't done in 1,365 days, pass a budget. something that body hasn't done since 2009. now, instead of demanding spending cuts, republicans have added a provision to the bill that would suspend lawmakers' own paychecks if their chamber fails to pass a budget by april 15th. that's a lot like actually the no labels, no budget, no pay plan that that organization's been dealing with, talking about for a long time. michael steele, i think that's a great idea. >> i do, too. >> if you don't do your job -- >> why get paid for it? >> and the democrats in the senate haven't done their job in that many days, why pay them? >> i don't think you should. in fact,
a barrel with the debt ceiling coming up with no time to announce any long- term balance budget framework or any kind of structural reforms to health and retirement programs. we had the short-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign until my campaign, thankfully, he d
, they're going to introduce their bill, vote on their bill to extend the debt ceiling for three months, give themselves a little running room, but this is a president who is going to be aggressive about his agenda. he didn't just talk over republicans, he went right after them, talking about takers, s saying that's not what social security and medicare are, a jab not only at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the s
in congress. >> the focus shifts to pressing issues including the debt ceiling, gun- control, an immigration reform. however, today both the president and first lady along with a bite and will attend the national prayer service at the national cathedral. the white house will hold a press briefing today and just as congress returns to work. >> we will be back but with more on the kron 4 morning oh! progress-oh! -oh! -oh! oh! oh! ♪ what do you know? oh! ♪ bacon? -oh! -oh! oh!

't produced one in almost years. on may 19th is what the debt ceiling has been extended to. what paul ryan is saying is that whatever bill comes out of the senate will call for more taxes and republicans in the house will not accept that. and if that then is the case then you get the cuts to the defense department and medicare. do i have that right? >> that is fundamentally correct. what we are looking at and what we'll see is whether or not the democrats in the senate insist that they sequester would be altered only by raising taxes and that is not going to happen. we j a $650 billion tax increase we are not going to do another one. these were cuts in law and they need to be altered. the president in his debate with governor romney said the sequester will not happen, and he's got to step up and help us work our way through that, because it does cut too much, in my opinion, the defense department. they've already had a big cut. this will be another big cut. and i think it's dangerous for the defense department and will do damage in a way that we should not do. bill: i mentioned the senate
pad wasn't even invented yet. >> congressman, you're going to vote on the debt ceiling. when you make that vote most people believe it's a concession, and you have a new legislative strategy. do you believe you will be able to force a budget by april 15th? >> well, i think the american people expect a more accountable, effective and efficient government. the number one thing all elected officials to do to pass a budget, every household does it. how can you plan for the future how can you do anything the president says he wants to do about investing in the future if you don't have a budget? you can't invest for your kids' college, you can't set aside what you're going to pay for your house payment or anything. the government has to pass one and the senate has not passed one in almost four years. that has caused a lot of the debt and the uncertainty we have today. >> what's going to happen in the house that will force the senate to pass the budget. >> the first thing that will happen is we'll do a short term debt limit increase so it will go to the senate and if the
could spiral us backward really is if one of these upcoming fights on sequestration or the next debt cellin ceiling, you know, finally causes it to -- >> that is sort of baked in the cake. everybody expects they're going keep kicking it down the road. why, then, do we have a surge in stock market? >> one is that corporate profits are very good. but don't forget, corporate companies are holding that money aside. they don't want to reinvest. they're worried about the economy and it's not that helpful. the season reason is because the federal reserve has kept interest rates so, so low that there's almost no other place for people to put their money. so it's less a function of the real economy and more a function of the extra analynalties. >> so should people in america be hopeful about the economy and jobs? >> i think they should be. housing has turned around both in terms of available pricing, stock, new housing starts. it's not like it was in 2006 but it's better than it was in 2008. to whole issue of fracking may be something for environmentalists but there's no question it's creatin
